a low song (for a dying moth)

What is that sound high in the air
Murmur of maternal lamentation

sing
a low song
for the bogong moth

e-e-iy e

sing
sad songs
for the bogong moth

e-e-iy
corroboree

mother
they are dead
they are dying

e-e-iy e

mother they are dead
they
are dying

e-e-iy
corroboree

mother
we are
dead
and
we are dying

e-e-iy e
iy e

we are dying

no more
we will hide
the moon
